    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2016?

    I think Josh should look ahead ok last years incident was bad a disgrace to be honest, but he needs a injury free year if he does that he will do well.

    Top Riders Of The 1980s

    Not a great riding style but he was a very good team rider he had eyes in the back of his head.I always think the old Dudley Cradley track was a hard one to master just like Newcastle if you did it you generally ended up a very good rider.Was there anybody more patriotic than Bobby to put on the USA body cover?he give everything wore his heart on his sleeve i see quite a bit of his career at Reading really enjoyed it.

    Top Riders Of The 1980s

    Nice that Schwartz was remembered because believe me he was a very good rider.Not the quickest but boy could he ride good lines, a great tactical rider so unlucky in a way because there was always that graveyard USA world championship round to get by.Did he once reach a commonwealth final at White City?i think Lee won the round.?

    Scunthorpe Scorpions 2016?

    Has Josh been back on the bike yet? has he had any laps yet a big year for Josh before injury he was going quite well last year.I don't know what you Scunny fans think or expect from Josh this year, around a 8.80/9.00 average maybe? i think he will also have a decent EL campaign.

    Top Riders Of The 1980s

    A great read alot of effort has gone into this fair play to you,Nielsen on top in 83 on stats 😞 alone not to worry eh!

    Top Riders Of The 1980s

    I agree Witcher are you taking the p... more than likely? but we do agree sometimes can't wait for the 1983 ranking's don't forget Eaces1 that Lee murdered Nielsen in the 83 BLRC and the Pride of the East Trophy in 83 hope those results count.

    Top Riders Of The 1980s

    Carter and Knudsen you could put them at the level of Nielsen/Gundersen at that time, they both were very unlucky with injuries.Nielsen/ Erik they bagged seven titles between them would they have done that? if injuries(and other circumstances)had not happened.No Penhall,Lee,Carter,Knudsen,Sigalos,Sanders, those six at there best would of been big players from 83 onwards Sanders for me is often forgotten up until his death was on a upward spiral and in superb form.

    Swindon 2016 - A New Era Starts...we Thought..

    Does that show you ORLOV " that this is a cheap option? ( better than nothing i know)I was hoping this venue with Belle Vue would compete to get a few decent events.Really if i am honest i would rather stay at the Abbey,the track decent when right for me facilities mean nothing to me personally.This stadium is a cheap building will look nice at first but will regress,also the track size and shape will not be nearly the same as the Abbey.I don't want to moan i am glad we might still have a track to go to as other tracks have suffered but i am not overly overjoyed.

    Leicester Lions 2016

    Are Poole's reserve pairing much better ?i think not Newman/Ellis are decent but none of them are 1/5 riders.Also that is with Kurtz i think won't move down ? i believe he will do well a learning curve season but he will do well in the top five.

    Coatbridge

    You won't get a decent photo of him at Swindon in the early 70s mate I think he scored 0 ?

    Barry Hearn....

    Hearn could do a great job for speedway but it will never happen,people also have to realise Hearn is a bit of a dictator.He has not been all good for Snooker a lot of decision's he has made have not all been totally popular what i would say is the man is great at making tough decision's and he has not stayed living in the the past like me😀😀

    Barry Hearn....

    What price do you think is a fair price? do you think the diehard supporter is taken for granted Witcher.?

    Barry Hearn....

    A really difficult decision Gemini,i would love to see the top boys back even if most can only do ten meeting's a season.But you are right i think we should cut our cloth accordingly try to get the product right entertaining value for money and use it to push some of our Brits through speedway i think is a 10/12 pound sport no more.

    How Do We Attract A New Young Audience?

    A great post the point 4 about referee's pulling starts back is a great one,it really annoys me if the tapes are not broken get the race off.
